Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Capitalizing on a resurgence of interest in saints, angels, and other God-revealing phenomena, religious scholar Cowan offers a popular devotional manual based on the commonly accepted biographies of some 200 saints, with suggested prayers and devotions appended to each life. Librarians looking for a counterpart to Ramsgate Abbey's Book of Saints (Catholic Book, 1989) may be disappointed, but the charm and accessibility of this volume should win it a broad general readership.
